      bootmem: Add free_bootmem_late() · 9f993ac3
      FUJITA Tomonori authored
      Add a new function for freeing bootmem after the bootmem
      allocator has been released and the unreserved pages given to
      the page allocator.
      This allows us to reserve bootmem and then release it if we
      later discover it was not needed.
      ( This new API will be used by the swiotlb code to recover
        a significant amount of RAM (64MB). )

      bootmem: reorder interface functions and add a missing one · 2d0aae41
      Tejun Heo authored
      Impact: cleanup and addition of missing interface wrapper
      The interface functions in bootmem.h was ordered in not so orderly
      manner.  Reorder them such that
      * functions allocating the same area group together -
        ie. alloc_bootmem group and alloc_bootmem_low group.
      * functions w/o node parameter come before the ones w/ node parameter.
      * nopanic variants are immediately below their panicky counterparts.
      While at it, add alloc_bootmem_pages_node_nopanic() which was missing.

      bootmem: clean up arch-specific bootmem wrapping · c1329375
      Tejun Heo authored
      Impact: cleaner and consistent bootmem wrapping
      By setting CONFIG_HAVE_ARCH_BOOTMEM_NODE, archs can define
      arch-specific wrappers for bootmem allocation.  However, this is done
      a bit strangely in that only the high level convenience macros can be
      changed while lower level, but still exported, interface functions
      can't be wrapped.  This not only is messy but also leads to strange
      situation where alloc_bootmem() does what the arch wants it to do but
      the equivalent __alloc_bootmem() call doesn't although they should be
      able to be used interchangeably.
      This patch updates bootmem such that archs can override / wrap the
      backend function - alloc_bootmem_core() instead of the highlevel
      interface functions to allow simpler and consistent wrapping.  Also,

      Introduce flags for reserve_bootmem() · 72a7fe39
      Bernhard Walle authored
      This patchset adds a flags variable to reserve_bootmem() and uses the
      BOOTMEM_EXCLUSIVE flag in crashkernel reservation code to detect collisions
      between crashkernel area and already used memory.
      This patch:
      Change the reserve_bootmem() function to accept a new flag BOOTMEM_EXCLUSIVE.
      If that flag is set, the function returns with -EBUSY if the memory already
      has been reserved in the past.  This is to avoid conflicts.
      Because that code runs before SMP initialisation, there's no race condition
      inside reserve_bootmem_core().

      [PATCH] x86-64: Set HASHDIST_DEFAULT to 1 for x86_64 NUMA · e073ae1b
      Ravikiran G Thirumalai authored
      Enable system hashtable memory to be distributed among nodes on x86_64 NUMA
      Forcing the kernel to use node interleaved vmalloc instead of bootmem for
      the system hashtable memory (alloc_large_system_hash) reduces the memory
      imbalance on node 0 by around 40MB on a 8 node x86_64 NUMA box:
      Before the following patch, on bootup of a 8 node box:
      Node 0 MemTotal:      3407488 kB
      Node 0 MemFree:       3206296 kB
      Node 0 MemUsed:        201192 kB
      Node 0 Active:           7012 kB
      Node 0 Inactive:          512 kB
      Node 0 Dirty:               0 kB
      Node 0 Writeback:           0 kB
      Node 0 FilePages:        1912 kB
      Node 0 Mapped:            420 kB
      Node 0 AnonPages:        5612 kB
      Node 0 PageTables:        468 kB
      Node 0 NFS_Unstable:        0 kB
      Node 0 Bounce:              0 kB
      Node 0 Slab:             5408 kB
      Node 0 SReclaimable:      644 kB
      Node 0 SUnreclaim:       4764 kB
      After the patch (or using hashdist=1 on the kernel command line):
      Node 0 MemTotal:      3407488 kB
      Node 0 MemFree:       3247608 kB
      Node 0 MemUsed:        159880 kB
      Node 0 Active:           3012 kB
      Node 0 Inactive:          616 kB
      Node 0 Dirty:               0 kB
      Node 0 Writeback:           0 kB
      Node 0 FilePages:        2424 kB
      Node 0 Mapped:            380 kB
      Node 0 AnonPages:        1200 kB
      Node 0 PageTables:        396 kB
      Node 0 NFS_Unstable:        0 kB
      Node 0 Bounce:              0 kB
      Node 0 Slab:             6304 kB
      Node 0 SReclaimable:     1596 kB
      Node 0 SUnreclaim:       4708 kB
      I guess it is a good idea to keep HASHDIST_DEFAULT "on" for x86_64 NUMA
      since x86_64 has no dearth of vmalloc space?  Or maybe enable hash
      distribution for all 64bit NUMA arches?  The following patch does it only
      for x86_64.
      I ran a HPC MPI benchmark -- 'Ansys wingsolid', which takes up quite a bit of
      memory and uses up tlb entries.  This was on a 4 way, 2 socket
      Tyan AMD box (non vsmp), with 8G total memory (4G pernode).
      The results with and without hash distribution are:
      1. Vanilla - runtime of 1188.000s
      2. With hashdist=1 runtime of 1154.000s

      [XFRM]: Dynamic xfrm_state hash table sizing. · f034b5d4
      David S. Miller authored
      The grow algorithm is simple, we grow if:
      1) we see a hash chain collision at insert, and
      2) we haven't hit the hash size limit (currently 1*1024*1024 slots), and
      3) the number of xfrm_state objects is > the current hash mask
      All of this needs some tweaking.
      Remove __initdata from "hashdist" so we can use it safely at run time.

      [PATCH] FRV: Fix FRV arch compile errors · 9dec17eb
      David Howells authored
      Fix some FRV arch compile errors, including:
       (*) Marking nr_kernel_pages as __meminitdata so that references to it end up
           being properly calculated rather than being assumed to be in the small
           data section (and thus calculated wrt the GP register).  Not doing this
           causes the linker to emit errors as the offset is too big to fit into the
           load instruction.
       (*) Move pm_power_off into an unconditionally compiled .c file as it's now
           unconditionally accessed.
       (*) Declare frv_change_cmode() in a header file rather than in a .c file, and
           declare it asmlinkage.

      [PATCH] x86_64: Handle empty PXMs that only contain hotplug memory · a8062231
      Andi Kleen authored
      The node setup code would try to allocate the node metadata in the node
      itself, but that fails if there is no memory in there.
      This can happen with memory hotplug when the hotplug area defines an so
      far empty node.
      Now use bootmem to try to allocate the mem_map in other nodes.
      And if it fails don't panic, but just ignore the node.
      To make this work I added a new __alloc_bootmem_nopanic function that
      does what its name implies.
      TBD should try to use nearby nodes here.  Currently we just use any.
      It's hard to do it better because bootmem doesn't have proper fallback
      lists yet.

      [PATCH] swiotlb: make sure initial DMA allocations really are in DMA memory · 281dd25c
      Yasunori Goto authored
      This introduces a limit parameter to the core bootmem allocator; The new
      parameter indicates that physical memory allocated by the bootmem
      allocator should be within the requested limit.
      We also introduce alloc_bootmem_low_pages_limit, alloc_bootmem_node_limit,
      alloc_bootmem_low_pages_node_limit apis, but alloc_bootmem_low_pages_limit
      is the only api used for swiotlb.
      The existing alloc_bootmem_low_pages() api could instead have been
      changed and made to pass right limit to the core allocator.  But that
      would make the patch more intrusive for 2.6.14, as other arches use
      alloc_bootmem_low_pages().  We may be done that post 2.6.14 as a
      With this, swiotlb gets memory within 4G for both x86_64 and ia64

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,

      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
